Tin House Reels: Keren Cytter

Literally “The Whisper of the Devi”, Keren Cytter’s “Les Ruissellements du Diable” is a story of obsessive imaginations and the ways in which we can both obliterate and subscribe to reality.

Tin House Reels: Kelly Fry

This week we’re excited to screen Kelly Fry’s The Ballad of Pete Fry. “Everyone had a story about Pete [my father],” Kelly said. “He was a gambler, drinker, trickster, and storyteller—and, after his death, he became a folk hero.”  The film narrates those many viewpoints from family and friends—and leaves us with a sad, still, piercing silhouette of this […]
